Spacious, light and fully-equipped apartments. Surrounded by nature, the views are exceptional and there is a sensation of peace and tranquillity despite the fact that we are only 20 minutes from Vitoria-Gasteiz and 40 minutes from Bilbao.
The observatories for watching and photographing the birds of the local environment are installed within the grounds of the guesthouse. A different and convenient way of enjoying birds irrespective of the weather conditions.
Discover our natural environment in an interpretative manner. Fauna, flora, and the history and culture of the people who live in our protected natural parks. We also offer guided visits to our cities.
At Elai Etxea, we try to generate the lowest possible impact on the environment.
In this way, the energy required for heating and hot sanitary water is obtained by means of a high-efficiency biomass boiler. In the future, we plan to install solar collectors.
In addition to providing cold at the height of summer, the air-conditioning unit (aerothermal) installed in the Baias apartment provides heat in the winter and contributes a great deal to the heating system.
The windows oriented towards areas with lower insulation are fitted with double, low-emission glass.
The electricity supply contract is to be replaced with another that supplieselectricity from exclusively renewable generation sources.
All the light bulbs used in the house are LED and the taps and tanks are fitted with water saving devices.
Waste recycling and the consumption and use of environmentally-friendly products and services will be facilitated and promoted.
On a periodic basis, a sustainability report will be drawn up to implement as far as possible these environmental commitments and other commitments of an economic and social nature through the application of a series of sustainability indicators.
